Please note per MA Dept. of Public Health:

*Do I still have to quarantine after I’ve been vaccinated if I am identified as a close contact to someone with COVID-19?

*Yes. We do not yet have data to say for how long the COVID-19 vaccines provide protection from getting sick and whether the vaccines also keep people from spreading COVID-19. Experts need to understand more about the protection that COVID-19 vaccines provide before changes are made to public health quarantine recommendations. Other factors, like how many people get vaccinated and how the virus is spreading in communities, will also affect this decision.

important MA Travel Order information (as of 1/28/2021):

  • Persons Who Tested Positive within 90 Days of Arrival to Massachusetts and Successfully Completed Isolation: Individuals who are COVID-19-recovered, meaning individuals who tested positive more than 10 days but less than 90 days ago and who do not have symptoms, do not need to obtain a negative PCR test prior to traveling to, or quarantine upon arrival to, Massachusetts. COVID-19 recovered individuals arriving in Massachusetts must have documentation of the positive PCR test result, including the date it was taken, available if asked. This exception does not include COVID-19-recovered individuals who have symptoms of COVID-19, who must follow all testing and quarantine guidance outlined in the travel rules.
  • For children travelling with an adult to a red-state: testing for children, 10 years and younger, who are traveling with an adult from their household is not required. Children 10 years and younger should mimic the quarantine requirement and testing options completed by the household adult they accompanied for travel. If the accompanying adult chooses to quarantine, the child must also quarantine. If the accompanying adult chooses to obtain a test, the child and adult must quarantine until the adult’s negative test result is received.
  • Do I have to comply with the Travel Order if I have received a COVID-19 vaccine?
    • Yes. At this time, vaccinated individuals must continue to comply with the Governor’s Travel Order and related testing and quarantine requirements. While experts learn more about the protection that COVID-19 vaccines provide under real-life conditions, it will be important for everyone to continue using all the tools available to us to help stop this pandemic, including quarantining after a possible exposure, covering your mouth and nose with a mask, washing hands often, and staying at least 6 feet away from others.

***For more information, please see the MA Travel Order link in the chart above.

Mask Breaks:

As of 11/13/2020-The Board of Health has taken a hard stand on the mask break policy. In response to this, we have determined that this policy of taking breaks from wearing masks while indoors, other than for eating and drinking, is not permitted.
